  1. iOS 11 Full Drag and Drop Compatibility

    Gives OneNote (and hopefully any other Office365 applications) the ability to drag and drop files, images, and text from other apps on iOS 11 for the iPad.

    • Export from iPad as pdf

      Please can you mak a function that allows users to export notebooks to PDF using OneNote for iPad.
      Is there any existing workaround to export whole notebooks as a pdf from Notebook?

      • Record audio and write at the same time.

        Much like the desktop version the iPad should be able to record audio while doing other tasks, this way you can record your lectures and take notes, on top of this it would be nice to be able to play back the lecture by selecting parts of your notes. Why is the iPad version so behind the desktop version.

          • STRAIGHT LINE FEATURE

            Please would you allow us to draw straight lines - just as you would in notability (your competitor) - DRAWING STRAIGHT LINES IS ESSENTIAL AND IS SUCH A SIMPLE FEATURE TO IMPLEMENT INTO THE SOFTWARE OF THIS APP - THIS FEATURE IS SEVERELY LACKING ON THE IPAD

            • Enable automatic drawing for OneNote on iPad with Apple Pencil

              On Word and Excel on the iPad where it isn't that useful (for my use case, anyway), there is an option in the Settings app to toggle on or off always inking with the pencil. I turned that off in both because in those apps 99% of the time if I'm using the Pencil it's to navigate.

              But in OneNote, where I use the pencil to take notes, I always have to manually go in and turn on drawing for the Pencil. I would love for it to just start auto inking when the pencil is used like Word and…

                • Fix It So I Don't Keep Having To Re-Enter My Password

                  Not every time but at least once a day refuses to sync and have to "Tap to enter your password" when I entered it only yesterday or the day before.

                  It's like the password "wears out". enter it and it remembers it for a bit but then forgets it, you have to re-enter, works for a bit then it wears-out/forgets again.

                  If it forgot my notes like it forgets my password ussers would be screaming

                    • ink to text

                      Please bring out an ink to text feature so we can convert our notes into a typed document if needed. Ink to text for mathematical equations would be amazing as well although that is a little more complex to do. However, the ink to text is almost mandatory at this point as all other microsoft devices such as the surface pro have this... One note should be the same through out all platforms. Atleast for the most basic featuresAtleast

                      • Really listen to our requests

                        You always say: we do listen to you. But for many years you do not implement the ink to text function in OneNote as in the desktop version. And still you give no answers why you do not implement it.

                          • Simple mind-map functionality

                            Adding mind-maps to OneNote seems to be popular. This could be added simply by allowing lines to attach to boxes, letting users quickly create mind maps with relatively little back-end programming added.

                              What happened - Getting all kinds of sync issues now?
                              Have been using OneNote without issue in iPad and iPhone for several years now. Big fan. However, based on recent updates, many notes are NO LONGER syncing on iPhone. Getting dreaded OxE00000007 error. No way to fix...now way to see what the issue is. Very frustrating. These are notes that have sync'd flawlessly until recent updates. What happened?

                              • Go back to the previous navigation method or give us the choice

                                Was just upgraded and that was a mistake for me. The old Vertical & Horizontal navigation allows quicker switches between task notes vs having to pull up on the left vertical bar.

                                • Much closer feature parity between the iPad version of Onenote and the Windows UWP version of Onenote

                                  The windows UWP version of Onenote is much more capable than the iPad Pro version. I would like to see these features brought to the iPad as well as the other versions of Onenote to have feature parity and to give a seamless experience when switching between devices

                                      Have the search function of OneNote not only take you to the Note that has the text but also where in the Note the text can be found. This is for the iphone app

                                      • Proper Notebook Format PDF Export

                                        Allow users to choose a page style (A4, A5), with proper pagination like MS Word and show page numbers if so desired. This format could be exported to PDF, along with rule/grid lines if the user had them for the file.

                                        • Lasso select

                                          Would love to be able to modify items with the lasso select, other than move, resize, and delete. Examples:

                                          -Change color of selected handwriting from green to blue.
                                          -Change font of all lasso-selected text boxes

                                          The lasso select only works when it is selected - it may make sense to leave items selected when navigating the ribbon, but including a “Deselect All” button to then clear your selections.
